Instructional materials aid the comprehension of subject matter. Advances in information technologies over the past several years have simplified the development and distribution of informative, multimedia-rich and interactive instructional materials. Educational computer games, training simulations and online interactive tutorials present synthetic learning experience. This synthetic learning experience combines text, audio, visuals and animations to teach concepts, facts, and procedures in mathematics, science and languages in a more interactive and engaging manner. Learners can be challenged to solve problems, encouraged to illustrate creative expressions and asked to learn by doing. A more personalized learning experience is possible by incorporating contextual learning aids and tailoring learner-centric responses. Learner’s assessment can be embedded or attached separately. It is easy to design student assessment, which is relevant to local syllabus. We believe using computer games, training simulations and interactive tutorials side-by-side traditional classroom settings, supplement learning and make learning more enjoyable.
